There are two types of Moonstone that are commonly seen, normal Orthoclase Moonstone which will have a slight shimmer to it, and Rainbow Moonstone, which has rainbow, usually blue, colour flashes. Rainbow Moonstone is actually a white feldspar, and so a variety of Labradorite. There is a variety of Orthoclase Moonstone with a black colour, and a beautiful soft shimmer - this should not be confused with Labradorite however!
